7:15 pm
the most important thing you can do is have complete clarity. lou: administered by japan, as you certainly know well, for decades. and it is disputed territory in the sense that there are rich natural resources offshore. the chinese obviously want them. they're pretty important to our japanese allies as well. where does -- what is the smartest way to resolve this dispute? because it is certainly that. >> you are not going to completely resolve it because what you see is it is not just one area. china has been expanding their territorial claims. reseeded in the philippines. we see that the japanese. last year alone the japanese had to scramble their planes over 300 times because of chinese planes coming toward their territories. what we see in this particular situation, if we are going to try to attempt to stem and deal with it, the united states has to be very clear, have a strong
7:16 pm
presence because that is a very common in floods, but the second thing is we have to be very clear that we're not going to just give in to their demands because they will begin with this identification but well consistently match that up. the administration did the right thing when it first happened. we said -- to flying over. that was appropriate. they came right back around and suggested that our commercial planes should comply with this by following these reports. i think that was the wrong act to take. lou: the japanese, just interject, so everyone knows, and a fit when the obama administration did that because they have advised their carriers to do the exact opposite, not to cooperate with the chinese authorities in a filing flight plan data with them over the area. >> the south koreans are concerned, too. and they made the same recommendations to their carriers that the japanese did. lou: you say it cannot be
7:17 pm
resolved. the potential here for conflict is immense. the japanese are not going to back away whatsoever. ambiguity about our support, as a ministrations support for the japanese interest, the south korean interest in the region, that could be deadly dangerous. >> there is no question that we see this escalation that the chinese are doing, and it is a very, very reckless game. as you mentioned, i don't believe the chinese want to see a conflict right now. we don't. the japanese don't. but when you take these kind of activities, it is very easy to have a misstep. when you do have a conflict, something happens command of a sudden you have a ripple effect in the domino effect that could be very, very disasters in the entire region. when i say it cannot be resolved, the chinese, when they have a strategy are pretty good and sticking to it in implementing it. what we need to do is manage it. the way you do that is by making sure we don't give credence to it and give them the recognition

7:24 pm
because i did think that most people know your entire personal story, obviously what makes the book so compelling in part. walter mondale, henry jackson. i mean, how could you be associated with such people given year conservative philosophy? >> i am glad u.s. people ask me how you go from walter mondale to fox news. the answer -- the short answer is i was young once. a long answer is that it actually was not i did not have an epiphany and wake up one morning in the clouds parted. a shaft of light came in in the lord spake get them to me. it was not quite down and worked out. quite simple. in my 20's i was democrat. this is a road that has been tried by many. what happened is simple. when i was in my thirties i began my writing career. the evidence, the war on poverty , which i believe again
7:25 pm
in my 20's in my teens, the evidence on what it actual effects were began to come in, and i was a physician opened to impair the evidence. the evidence was absolutely unmistakable. not only was it money wasted, not helping the people and was meant to help, it actually was undermining the committee's in the people who've been to hell. and began to reexamine the premises of this kind of a great society liberalism -- greece society liberalism i believed it. over time with the accumulation of evidence i thought, to achieve the same ends, a humane, decent society that works well and provides for everyone. small government conservatism is the far more accurate answer for any society, and that is why i changed over the years. lou: i have listened to you and review of the course of many years. you have always had a certain amount of humanitarianism, a humanity in your rationality in

7:27 pm
the idea of social security. you don't want to have the elderly living in destitution. that was a wonderful idea. the problem is this, liberals are stuck in a reactionary cycle where they are attached to the institution rather than the idea . when social security was created life expected to come by expectancy was 52. it is not 80. it was never intended to subsidize the last 17 years of life. therefore it has to be adopted. liberals will not be willing to live with that, and the conservatism of believe in is one that embraces the goals of a decent, humane society that looks after the helpless and the elderly but does it, is not afraid to reform and to do it anyway that is market oriented and rational. lou: you are thinking, it collides with a number of impulses. it is establishment. that is, if you will, and i
7:28 pm
don't mean this in a pejorative, but corporatist thinkers and within the republican party there are libertarian seem to have no place and under their minds or hearts, to me, responsible regulation and a role for government. we had a republican establishment right now calling for the establishment to stand up to the tea party. i mean, a bizarre statement. and i think, perhaps, a sign of some considerable trouble to come. your thoughts? >> in part that is why i wrote the book because i do think there is a conservative philosophy that takes the best from everywhere in that believes in the safety net. does not believe in the entitlement society, which is the liberal and obama, hyper liberal, i would say. the government, regulation, intrusion. but he does believe that we are due society, and generous society and there are solutions
